When my cat came home today, she was acting strangely. At first, we thought something had spooked her. She sat in the middle of the kitchen, trembling. If she was touched, she squeaked, which is odd because she usually never makes a sound. She retreated to a my bedroom, and had what appeared to be a seizure! Her ear, neck, and leg twitched as her pupils dialated and her body contorted. She finally calmed down, and she is now resting motionless on the bed, eyes closed, feet tucked under her. If she is approached, she doesn't respond. She appears to still be shaking slightly.

I am home alone and terrified. I don't know what to do. What could have happened to her? What can I do to help her until she can get medical attention?

Get her to an emergency animal hospital as soon as you can. This may be very serious.

Please keep us posted.

If you are alone, please call someone who can take you and kitty to the vet. It sounds like something they need to look at immediately, especially since she's having seizures.

I really think you should find an emergency vet and take your cat there as soon as possible!!! Your cat - as an outdoor cat - may have eaten something ir someone may have hurt her. You just do not know, nor do we online. I doubt even calling a vet could help - she really should be examined.


Good luck and please let us know how you made out!
